Pakistan Super League, 19th Match: Karachi Kings v Peshawar Zalmi at Dubai (DSC), Feb 17, 2016
Peshawar Zalmi won by 5 wickets (with 9 balls remaining)
Played at Dubai International Cricket Stadium (neutral venue)
17 February 2016 - day/night match (20-over match)

Hasan Ali to Shahzaib Hasan, OUT, gone. Another hoick, but this time it results in a wicket. Full outside off, Hasan looks to go over the off side infield but ends up getting a thin edge which is easily taken. End of a rather iffy innings

Shahzaib Hasan c †Kamran Akmal b Hasan Ali 18 (17b 1x4 1x6) SR: 105.88

Karachi Kings 41/1   LMP Simmons 19* (20b 3x4)   Hasan Ali 2.5-0-21-1

Abdur Rehman to Simmons, 1 run, OUT, how is that? Worked away to deep midwicket, Simmons comes back for the second. The throw is excellent and Wessels' bat is on the crease. Good collection by Rehman and Wessels has to go. Not the way Wessels would have wanted to go.

MH Wessels run out 3 (6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Karachi Kings 53/2   LMP Simmons 25* (24b 4x4)   Abdur Rehman 0.4-0-8-0

Shahid Afridi to Simmons, OUT, bowled. Chopped on. Shortish length on off, Simmons tries another of those cut strokes but this time the ball is much straighter. Gets a thick inside edge which clips the leg bail. End of an impressive innings after the early stutter.

LMP Simmons b Shahid Afridi 49 (37b 6x4 2x6) SR: 132.43

Karachi Kings 83/3   Shoaib Malik 6* (6b)   Shahid Afridi 2.4-0-22-1

Aamer Yamin to Shoaib Malik, OUT, the time out has done the trick for Peshawar. Full down leg, Malik just helps it on its way to short fine leg. The umpires check for a no ball. Looks like Yamin has overstepped. But does he have a smidgen behind it? My decision? No ball. But he has been given.

Shoaib Malik c Imran Khan b Aamer Yamin 15 (14b 0x4 0x6) SR: 107.14

Karachi Kings 97/4   RS Bopara 5* (7b 1x4)   Aamer Yamin 2.1-0-14-1

Sammy to Shakib Al Hasan, OUT, full outside off, slower delivery. Shakib tries to slog it away but cannot get under it enough. Ends up skewing it off the outer half of the bat to long-off. Easy take.

Shakib Al Hasan c Abdur Rehman b Sammy 11 (12b 0x4 0x6) SR: 91.66

Karachi Kings 127/5   RS Bopara 22* (20b 2x4)   DJG Sammy 1.1-0-6-1

Imran Khan to Bopara, OUT, gone. Yamin has struck. Shortish delivery on leg, the ball just not coming onto Bopara who goes through with his pull. Ends up toe-ending it back to the bowler. A very important wicket at this time.

RS Bopara c & b Imran Khan 23 (22b 2x4 0x6) SR: 104.54

Karachi Kings 134/6   Bilawal Bhatti 6* (4b 1x4)   Imran Khan (1) 3.1-0-22-1

Hasan Ali to Sohail Khan, OUT, beautifully done from Sammy. Full on middle and leg, shovelled to midwicket where Sammy is lurking. He picks up and slowly returns the throw but hits the stumps at the non-strikers end. Another one goes.

Sohail Khan run out 7 (5b 0x4 1x6) SR: 140.00

Karachi Kings 147/7   Bilawal Bhatti 12* (5b 1x4 1x6)   Hasan Ali 3.1-0-22-1
